Maiden grass not feeling well?
I just planted some Maiden Grass (Micanthius Sinensis???) over the weekend. I bought 6 containers of OG's (3 maiden) from the nursery and kept them outside in their containers (watered) for approximately 7-10 days before planting.
Two of my Maiden Grasses look beautiful before and after planting. The third MG was seemingly okay (looked like the others before planting) but began looking a bit strange the day before I put it in the ground. I noticed it was a bit lighter weight in the container which tells me it was drier than the other two. Anyway...the foliage took on a look of ribbon that had been curled...almost like you see on Christmas packages where the ribbon was curled using scissors.
After planting all of my OG's, I gave them all a good watering (soaking) but after 2 days in the ground, the curly-cue one still looks a bit sickly. What can I do to save this critter...in the event it is sick? I have some liquid Miracle Grow that is suppose to be good for new plantings??? I'd like to do something before winter/dormancy comes here in zone 5. Thanks for your help!!!
P.S. Can anybody give me some ideas how and when to "cut back" or prune my OG's. I have Maiden, Morning Light, and Dwarf Hamelin. How much do I cut them back?
